Kevin Koththiigoda is the new bowling sensation of the Abu Dhabi T10 League. He is currently playing for Bangla Tigers.

The 21-year-old spinner is from Galle and his unique unorthodox bowling action has made every twitter fan in shock. Apparently fans his bowling action a news name ” The Frog  In A Belnder Action”.

Well, he’s not the first bowler to come up with suck actions. Indian Bowler Shivil Kaushik who used to play for Gujarat Lions in IPL has a similar kind of action. Even Paul Adams (South African Writs Spinner) has a weird bowling action.

Here’s How Twitterati Reacted:

Kevin Koththiigoda first grabbed eyeballs during the 2017 U-19 Asia Cup in Malaysia.

Koththiigoda, who hails from Galle and is a right-arm leg-spinner, was one of the members of the Sri Lankan team that beat Afghanistan by 61 runs. The unorthodox spinner took one wicket in the match.

On Sunday, in Abu Dhabi, the 21-year-old took the only wicket to fall in the Karnataka Tuskers’ innings. He dismissed West Indies’ Johnson Charles, ending with figures of 1/21 from his two overs.

Despite losing just one wicket, the Karnataka Tuskers could only manage 114 in their 10 overs.

In reply, the Bangla Tigers lost five wickets but overhauled the target with seven balls to spare largely thanks to Andre Fletcher’s 15-ball 40 and unbeaten 28 off just nine balls from Tom Moores.

Kevin Koththiigoda has played six T20s, taking six wickets at an economy rate of 8.57.
